Thetford

Thetford U3A interest groups

If you attend group events, many of the group leaders will be asking you to provide contact details in the event of an emergency, particularly for trips and outside activities. And don't forget to bring your membership card. Even if you're not yet a subscribing member of Thetford U3A, you can try most group events to see if they suit you, without any commitment (although there may be a small fee).

There is always a shortage of volunteers to help with the administration of groups. If you want a group to happen, the best way is to show a bit of initiative and volunteer to help with its organisation. If you want a subject that’s not currently on the list, contact someone on the Trustees Committee, if there’s enough interest, we’ll help you set it up.
